HELPING H A N D S JACKSON STREET YOUTH SERVICES Did you know there are homeless youth in our community? Jackson Street Youth Services helps runaway, homeless and at-risk youth in our region find the safety and stability they need. Two 24/7 shelters – in Albany and Corvallis – provide crisis stabilization for youth between the ages of 10-17. Longer-term housing for young adults ages 18-20 is also available. While staying at the shelters, Jackson Street teaches life skills like cooking meals, washing laundry, managing

schedules, and proper hygiene, with the goal of returning youth to a home that can be safe. Case Managers help youth set and accomplish goals and keep their lives on track, even following up after youth leave. Beyond the doors of the shelters, prevention programs halt youth homelessness before it begins. Jackson Street staff meet youth where they’re at – in schools, on the streets, and at drop-in

centers – building trust and connecting youth to resources and positive adult role-models. In fiscal year 2014-2015, Jackson Street served about 1,500 youth across all its programs and services. About 1/3 of its budget comes directly from community individuals and groups, without whom these resources could not exist.

Annette on Real Estate

Your Freedom Ends Where Mine Begins I cannot start complaining about them. I knew when I went in what is next door. Living in residential neighborhoods, tight or not, we agree to certain rules. Sometimes these rules are written down in the form of CC&Rs (conditions, covenants and restrictions). Sometimes they aren’t, and neighbors have to simply rely on common courtesy and decency. When we wanted a rooster years ago, we could (since we are not subject to CC&Rs) have simply gotten one. But roosters are noisy. So we sent an email to our neighbors asking if anybody had objections. Nobody did. We got the rooster, only to discover that our tolerance level is lower than our neighbors – the rooster went away. But if any neighbor had objected we would not have gotten one. Our freedom ends when we infringe on our neighbors.

This is also a measure of existing circumstances. If I buy a property next to somebody who has had roosters for years

A couple of weeks ago we received a notification from Benton County in the mail. They were seeking input about a proposed amendment to the Rural Residential Zoning Regulations – to accommodate commercial growing of Marijuana! I could not believe it. After alerting our neighbors I went to the meeting to voice our opposition. So did a bunch of other people and the issue is now tabled for a few more months. This is not about your personal 4 plants. Or even about medical marijuana. This is about commercial growing in residential neighborhoods - with children around close to schools.

Growing marijuana in Benton County is already permitted in EFU (exclusive farm use) and forest lands. Rural residential zones make up just about 5% of land in

Benton County, with about 4000 private property owners. Why it is deemed necessary to permit this crop in residential neighborhoods is beyond me. The County says there were parties interested in getting permission to grow marijuana on their rural residential parcels. In my opinion it should be clear that if you buy property in a residential neighborhood, nuisance crops and activities are not an option. That usage is infringing on the neighbors right to quiet enjoyment.

Here are our objections:

Water Quality and Supply Marijuana uses an extraordinary amount of water. Lots of wells in our area already are low and that is just from residential use with maybe a garden. Allowing a commercial operation to further deplete our aquifers, especially in the very dry months, is unconscionable. Domestic wells do not have water rights. We are defenseless if somebody sucks our wells dry for their personal profit. Marijuana

needs an extraordinary amount of pesticides and herbicides. Ironically we received our “dog tax” bill accompanied by a flyer expressing the grave worry of the county that pet waste might pollute the water. Where is the concern with marijuana? Smell This plant is an olfactory nuisance. Why would somebody be allowed to pollute our air for their own benefit and make us suffer for their profit?

Noise and Power Usage: Growing this plant requires additional power usage (especially indoor growing operations). Who will ensure that the grid will not be overloaded, and why do neighbors have to listen to the additional noise pollution, when they bought property in areas where they had the reasonable expectation of peace and quiet?

Proximity to Schools and Children: In Lewisburg and Adair Village there are 3 schools in close proximity to each other and lots of families with children live here. We do not want these operations near our children. There is no regulation in place to define how far away from schools and

children these operations have to be.

The Human Element: As we learned, neighbors close by already are confronted with somebody who is growing marijuana there. None of them was consulted or asked before this operation started. Neighbors have encountered visitors to their properties in search of the supplier. We do not want this for our family. This is a federally illegal drug. Does the county have the man power to police these operations and guarantee our safety at all times? There is a definitive difference in growing cabbage, and tomatoes, and growing marijuana. Real Estate Values As a real estate professional I see highly negative implications for residential property values. A marijuana growing operation on land around a property for sale would, in my opinion, need to be disclosed to a potential buyer. Everybody with common sense will see what that will do to a properties’ value and salability. Since there is, if this goes through, no protection from a neighbor selling to a grower, we all throughout the county would live with the constant threat that somebody will start this kind of operation next door.  We hope we do not have to

explain to the county what that will do to the overall quality of life in Benton County, the character of our rural residential neighborhoods, and the impact it would have on the rural residential real estate market. We have to disclose landslide areas, flood plains, etc, the potential of a growing operation clearly would need to be on the disclosure list. Would you buy a rural residential property next to a marijuana growing operation?

I certainly realize that this is a contentious issue. Let me be very clear: people can smoke what they want. As long as our quality of life is not influenced by that decision, they can go right ahead. But if our right to live peacefully, without nuisances and loss of value of our properties is being encroached on, the freedom of those who want to grow marijuana on residential property ends. I strongly oppose any change in RR Zoning

that allows for commercial growing of marijuana. Sincerely Annette

for better HEALTH By Guest Author Kris Denning I say it often in my yoga and pilates classes, “Listen to your body”, don’t force yourself into positions or work through exercises that create pain or discomfort. Yet, how often do we knowingly eat foods that cause pain and discomfort in our bodies? Many common symptoms are derived by the foods we eat and we often ignore them, as if it is just a fact of life we must live with. Some are more obvious and occur shortly after we eat. Indigestion, bloating, gas, diarrhea and more. For many of us, however, there may be more symptoms we can’t immediately realize. As late as 72 hours after consuming reactive foods, you may experience joint pain, migraine headaches, acne, brain fog, irritability, and weight gain. The health or our digestive system has everything to do with how our bodies react to the foods we eat. Our intestinal tract is vulnerable to

damage from stress, antibiotics, pain medications, antacids, artificial sweets, speed eating, and high sugar diets, just to name a few. This can contribute to a condition often referred to as leaky gut syndrome. Essentially, a damaged intestinal lining can allow undigested food particles to enter the bloodstream. The immune system reacts to these particles as foreign invaders, and war is waged against them, causing a myriad of symptoms. In my case, it was debilitating joint pain that left me depressed and hopeless. Unfortunately, we often turn to pain medication and anti-inflammatories for help, possibly the very thing that is creating the problematic pain in the first place. I turned to an elimination diet. Specifically, The Virgin Diet. This involved removing 7 of the most reactive foods (dairy, wheat, corn, soy, sugar, peanuts, artificial sweets)

for 21 days to find your baseline, and after day 21, bring in one of those foods for 3 or 4 days and take note of how you feel. Within a week of this diet I felt tons better. By eliminating dairy, I was completely pain free. Eliminating corn helped me lose 3-4 pounds of belly weight. I was able to take my body out of the hyper active inflammatory state, and by eating clean, low reactive foods, I am able to feel like me again. Find what works for you. Perhaps starting with a food journal and just taking notice of your symptoms. Find your own personal feel good. Perhaps that arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel, or whatever you’ve been plagued with can be solved by you. Do your own research. Never give up. Listen to your body. Your gut may be trying to tell you something.

Gardening With Brenda The 411 Brenda Powell is a fourth generation owner of Garland Nursery. Her passions include gardening, cooking, reading, writing and photography. Follow her writing at: garlandnursery.wordpress.com

Flowers Befitting our Best Friends Brenda Powell I love dogs and I love gardening. Throughout my lifetime, my family has had a lot of dogs. Many are buried on the nursery property in a place we call pet cemetery. Unlike the Stephen King novel, it is not a scary place. On the contrary, it is peaceful and pleasant. There are statues appropriate for the most recent passings and a few flowers planted to brighten the space. Seeing the sparseness got me to thinking, if I were to plant a memorial garden, which plants would best represent each dog. There’s Lady, the first family dog we had. She was a Collie. I don’t remember much about her personality so I choose a namesake plant, Lady’s Mantle (Achemilla mollis) to represent her. Rosie was my dad’s German shorthair pointer. She was a great bird hunting dog. She might like something that would be

bird attracting, so sunflowers will work for her. My first dog, Digger, was a black lab/ cocker spaniel mix. She was short, stout, and loved to run wild. Sweet marjoram can spread a lot and symbolizes joy and happiness. Creole was a goldendoodle before they called them that. She was born in Louisiana. Iris flowers resemble the french fleur de lis. That seems appropriate. My dog, Tumbles, was a free spirit, messy and full of an exuberance for life. A wildflower meadow would be perfect for her. Her sister, Tipper, was a regal, tidy, feminine dog. She was very devoted as well. Only a red rose will represent her in my mind.

Corlie, Erica’s last St. Bernard was big, sweet, and gentle. When I thought about her flower or plant, honeysuckle stuck out. It must be the sweet fragrance. I was happy to find that honeysuckle symbolizes generous and devoted affection. My parent’s dog, Francis, was the last dog to pass away. She was white with black spots and had a distinct, toothy smile. White dogtooth violet (Erythronium albidum) would be quite pretty added to the garden in her honor. Finally, there was Heidi, who belonged to Erica and Jim. They jokingly referred to her as “the Dick Clark of dogs.” I don’t have to pick one for her because they already planted her floral representation and it’s appropriate: a bunch of daffodils. Long-lived, dependable and full of joy and happiness. Each time I see them bloom, I will think of her.

Sten Carlson On the Money

A Balancing Act:

Saving for Retirement and Education


ow do you handle competing priorities when both may feel equally important? This is a question many face when it comes to saving for their own retirement and their children’s education at the same time. People are often told to save as much as they can for retirement. At the same time, they hear that given the realities of college costs today, it is critical that parents (and even grandparents) set money aside to help kids obtain a quality education. So how can you strike the right balance as you try to attain both objectives? If you find yourself facing this dilemma, you are not alone. Even if you are doing all you can to be a responsible saver, you may not feel confident that you are taking the right steps. As you save for retirement and college, a little perspective can be helpful. A simple fact – retirement takes priority As much as you’d like to help your children, your primary savings focus should be on protecting your own financial security. The biggest challenge you face is having enough money to cover what could be several decades of retirement expenses. Social Security may supplement your income needs, but unless you have access to an employer’s pension plan (and these days, few of us do), you are responsible for your own savings. Therefore, the size of your nest egg and the effectiveness of your retirement investments could make all the difference. You should consider putting money aside for retirement in a workplace retirement plan (Like a 401(k) or 403(b) plan), IRAs or annuities. The reason retirement savings should be

your top priority is that once you reach retirement, you have limited options if your savings come up short. If that happens, you may need to return to the workforce or adjust your lifestyle. Few people find either choice desirable, as it means adjusting your retirement expectations. The best time to act is while you are working and earning income. College saving is still important Although retirement deserves the greatest attention, setting aside funds to help children achieve a quality higher education is still an important goal for many parents to pursue. This is where your personal financial discipline comes into play. Consider this scenario: If you can set aside $100 per month (or about $3.25 per day) for 18 years, earning a 7 percent average annual return, you’ll accumulate more than $43,000 toward a child’s college education. (This example is for illustrative purposes only and does not represent an actual investment.) While this isn’t enough to pay the entire cost, it will help. Children have the opportunity to pursue other sources of financial aid, including scholarships, grants, workstudy programs and loans, to help offset tuition. You simply don’t have options like these to help fund your retirement. There are three important steps to making education saving a success: 1. Be strategic with your day-today spending so you have money available to save. 2. Start as early as you can to put time on your side.

3. Consider capitalizing on taxadvantaged savings by investing in a 529 college savings plan. Earnings can grow on a tax-free basis if funds are used to pay for qualified education expenses. There may also be additional tax or other benefits depending on the state you live in and the plan you select, so be sure to research your options. You need a plan The key to achieving both goals is to have a plan that identifies the specific financial targets you are trying to reach. This will make it easier to devise a strategy to simultaneously and successfully save for both retirement and college tuition. Most important, it will help you prioritize your savings so you don’t leave yourself shortchanged for retirement. A plan can help you fully understand the challenges you face and determine workable solutions.

Motivation From Bonnie The 411

Seasons Change C

So Can You


hanging direction in life can be exhilarating and at the same time somewhat unsettling. I have reinvented what I do more than several times as I transitioned through careers and the stages in life

So what’s next?

was, what I should be, and how far I could go in a chosen endeavor. I also listened to the limiting voices within my head.

Why was it so hard to give myself the permission to craft my own course and believe all things are possible?

In my search to define who I am and my purpose in life, I asked several close friends who have known me for years to help clarify, in their opinion; who I am. I found asking this question was challenging, although not because I was afraid of what it would reveal.

That, my friends, is the million-dollar question that can lead us to the richness of the answer.

I think the challenge related to my former sense of value and the belief I had in myself to change and succeed in a new direction—a direction that truly makes a difference.

Why? Again, the million-dollar question!

Through this process certain words emerged—fun, inspirational, reliable, leader, dedicated, empowering, and at times insecure.

What? Insecure? Okay, I can live with that. I will continue to be a work in progress and be kind to myself by allowing for a side step, or two, along the way. Hey, we are all human. We all have some of the same frailties and insecurities. We all struggle. The goal is to strive to the best version of our self. For years I had been listening to the external voices to define who I

I am an encourager to many, and yet if I am being totally honest, I knew I was holding myself back.

These are the three questions I used to evaluate my direction:


2. 3.

Is the work you are doing truly serving you? Is your life as meaningful as you would like? Are you aware of your personal value?

To me, personal value equals inner strength, which will support you in staying true to who you are and keep you inspired. My value is going up each time I push myself closer to the edge or completely out of a comfort zone and I live to tell the story.

Seasons change, and so can you. Rewriting and reframing the words The Food Issue

I said to myself and about myself has been one of the biggest ‘ah-ha’ breakthroughs in overcoming my fears and has led to my success in business and life. Today, I am a motivational speaker, coach and author delivering exceptional, life-changing experiences. Through the use of my voice, music and video, I engage and captivate audiences of every age group. My experience and stories inspire and empower others to take action in their own lives, to break down the walls of fear that can derail us from our desired outcome and to bring more joy and happiness into their lives. With the change in color of the falling leaves I am reminded of our power to change our direction in life. It does not matter where you start. It matters where you’re going. Believe. Stay focused. Take your time.

All things ARE possible.

Decorator? Designer?

Just what ARE we talking about here? Brian Egan

The popularity of Home Improvement shows has increased dramatically over the past decade. Viewers watch shows where incredibly beautiful, functional spaces are created by the show’s designers. Remodeling industry professionals have noticed that a significant amount of remodeling clients are unaware of the distinctions between the types of professional designers available to help them. These differences are typically not defined as part of the shows which can lead to confusion regarding the value of hiring an Interior Designer as part of your remodeling project. Listed below are some of the designer credentials to help you find a professional for your project.

CKBD requirements plus 5 yrs. Kitchen/ Bath industry experience plus 60 hours of NKBA education


As you can see, the educational requirements for designers range from weeks to years. The level of expertise and knowledge amassed by some designers goes beyond the above requirements. Most of the certifications also require ongoing annual education credits in order to keep abreast of new products, codes and trends. Along with trade show attendance this ongoing education helps designers offer clients the best knowledge and products for their project.

INTERIOR DESIGNERS NCIDQ (National Council for Interior Designer Qualifications) Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design plus 6 years minimum qualified work experience AKBD (Associate Kitchen and Bath Designer) from NKBA (National Kitchen and Bath Association) Bachelor’s degree plus 2 yrs. Kitchen and Bath industry experience plus 30 hours of NKBA education CKBD (Certified Kitchen and Bath Designer) from NKBA 18

CMKBD (Certified Master Kitchen and Bath Designer) from NKBA CKBD requirements plus 7 yrs. Kitchen/ Bath industry experience plus 100 hours of NKBA education INTERIOR DECORATORS CID (Certified Interior Decorators International) No Bachelor’s degree required, certification completed on-line or by direct mail, 2-10 weeks

Using a trained and educated professional will help to ensure that your design will be functional, esthetically pleasing, built to local building code and be a reflection of your desires. Your home is a huge investment and so is remodeling. Hiring an expert to guide you through the Willamette Living ~ October / November 2016

process can save you time, money and headaches. Paying for an experienced professional designer is a small expense that can and will make all the difference in your remodeling project. So which type of designer do you need? If you need to make internal structural changes, renovate a kitchen or bathroom, or need help with floorplan layout then hire an interior designer. If you need assistance with styling your home accessories, selecting furniture, choosing a color scheme, etc then hire an interior decorator. Here at Corvallis Custom Kitchens and Baths Brian Egan is an NKBA Certified Master Kitchen and Bath Designer.

The Book Report


The Alchemy of Time By Sebastian de Assis Available through all major online retailers and www. sebastiansdeassis.com

“How is it possible to prevail against such a juggernaut that cannot be defeated? How can you surmount the relentless assaults of the passing of time when your only certitude is that old age and death await patiently at the end of the journey? The Alchemy of Time is a magical realism novel that intertwines multiple aspects of the extraordinary possibilities of the human experience in the last chapters of an individual’s personal history. Zenior Citizen By Sebastian de Assis Available through all major online retailers and www. sebastiansdeassis.com

de Assis explores the possibility of strengthening the human spirit while the physical body weakens piecemeal. It is as though the two elements of an individual’s life (physical and non-physical) moved in opposite directions. Thus, since old age is an inevitable circumstance of the human experience that cannot be avoided—except by an untimely death—then the way to overcome it is by incapacitating its ability to have a negative effect on the aging person. And for those who can manage to achieve this goal, the end-result is self-empowerment. A California Closing By Robert Wintner Available through all major online retailers and in bookstores nationwide

Big M OK Used Car–magnate Michael Mulroney never set out to be heroic. He lives at the top, naturally, thanks to instinct, wit, and the will to win. Insolvency is not the same as poverty; poverty is for poor people. And a man of proven dexterity is not poor. Read how he beats the practical challenges of life in the golden state 20

The list of great places to eat in Oregon’s Willamette Valley is growing by leaps and bounds. Some people think of only the mid-section of Western Oregon when they hear “Willamette Valley.” But the Willamette Valley stretches from Eugene / Springfield in the south to Portland / Vancouver in the north, and hosts 70 percent of Oregon’s population. The availability of great 22

local produce, meats and fish combined with an intense worldwide interest in the valley, have created a huge upwelling of culinary talent. Local, young chefs are moving the culinary conversation forward, and some big names have put down roots here too. Events like FEAST Portland have focused an international spotlight on Oregon’s culinary scene. The national media, like

Bon Appetit Magazine -- who sponsors FEAST, rarely publishes a piece about what’s new, trending and delicious without mentioning Oregon. The following is far from a comprehensive list -- if that’s even possible. There are literally hundreds of great places to eat in the Willamette Valley, these are a few that we think do a fantastic job.

479 Court St. Salem, OR 97301 503-580-2936 rafns.com

“Rafns’ Restaurant is owned and operated by Nate and Rochelle Rafn, two life-long Oregonians who have a passion for great food. Since 2005, Nate has been an influential advocate for local agriculture. He is the creator of Living Culture, a television program about local food, and has written about local food for Salem Weekly Newspaper. In 2006, Nate launched Dinner at the Rafns’, an invitation-only supper-club operated inside his modest South Salem home. Nate and Rochelle married in 2011

and together they moved the supper-club to West Salem, where they would host monthly dinners for up to 39 guests. Each dinner featured a local farmer or artisan who’s products formed the foundation of the evening’s meal. Dinner at the Rafns’ developed a loyal following and regularly booked-up weeks in advance. Based on their success with Dinner at the Rafns’ and the relationships they had built with dozens of local farmers, Nate and Rochelle decided to take the leap and start their own legitimate restaurant. In June of 2013 they opened Rafns’ Restaurant, dedicated to sourcing the

highest quality foods from local farmers, ranchers, and artisans. RAFNS’ TODAY Rafns’ Restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday, serving a small seasonal menu paired with local and regional wines. Nate & Rochelle continue to host special dinners highlighting local farmers and winemakers. Rafns’ Restaurant is EarthWISE Certified and was named the 2015 Sustainable Small Business of the Year at the Mid-Valley Green Awards.” Learn More at: www.rafns.com

Bellhop, open since June 9th 2016, in downtown Corvallis, owned by Ian Hutchings and Brian Parks, is a delightful, local eatery. Their focus, as they say is “local comfort food.” But when you think “comfort food” don’t confuse that with run-of-the-mill. The two try to source locally as much as possible, and work with a number of 24

farms that are standouts in the area like Afton Field (chicken) and Rainshine (produce). Their food is comfort food elevated to a new level, but not so much so that you can’t eat there a few times a week if you want. Prices are reasonable, and they take great pride in their menus.

Willamette Living ~ October / November 2016

As a first-hand witness at FEAST Portland, Brian was in attendance to serve Bellhops (now famous) fried chicken, and there was a line like you’ve never seen. It was the most popular thing there. Yeah, eveyone loves the designer bites, but when it comes right down to it, comfort food, like Bellhop’s chicken wins.

Authentic Gaucho Fare in Portland

Fogo de Chão

930 SW 6th Ave. Portland, OR 97204 503-241-0900 fogodechao.com

A fantastic concept, Fogo de Chão (pronounced like “shown”) is a fun and delicious place to visit. The premise of the restaurant is that it’s like a traditional Fogo de Chão in Southern Brazil. According to our server, who was an authentic Gaucho -- from Brazil, what that means, literally, is “fire of the ground.” In Brazil these celebrations are huge. The Brazillians build a fire, on the groud, that can stretch for hundreds of feet, and then roast the traditional Gaucho staple -- beef. At the restaurant in Portland, one of many around the world, they recreate the feel of the celebrations in Brazil. Authentic Gaucho’s roast a wide selection of meats on an 26

open flame, and then carry the cooked meats into the dining room, if the little card on your table is green, that let’s them know you would like a slice, if it’s flipped over and red, you’re taking a break. The “full experience” begins with a trip to what they refer to as “The Market Table.” An awesome spread of salads, cheeses, meats, and appetizing nibbles of all sorts. The vibe is white tablecloth, but not stuffy by any means. The servers are fun and like to engage the diners. The food is to die for, and there is a full bar, and wine list to rival any in the city. Go try it, you’ll love it! Willamette Living ~ October / November 2016

There aren’t all that many “Best Western Premier” properties in the United States. Fortunately, we have one right in our backyard -- in Lebanon. The restaurant at the inn, “1847” as the name suggests, is also premier. Chef Derek Ridgway puts together some fantastic menus and executes with skill gained from years in the upscale restaurant industry. A veteran chef, Derek enjoyed fame and fortune in his early career in San Diego operating a number of restaurants of note. Then he was drawn north to be near family and enjoy the slower paced authentic Oregon lifestyle.

his skills to Lebanon at the new restaurant at Boulder Falls Inn. Dereks food concept is “I want the flavors to come through, without complication -- I want to taste what I’m eating and enjoy complexity of flavors without extensive manipulation.” Derek is working on a fall menu that will include some simple, winter comfort foods - like a nice, braised short rib with polenta and winter greens. Oh yes, we hear you Derek.

250 NW 13th Ave Portland, OR 97209 503-226-3394 bluehouronline.com

A perennial favorite or ours, Bluehour in the heart of Portland’s Peal District, serves consistently outstanding food. Recently we sampled the brunch menu, and as usual, it was heavenly. On the brunch menu, are starters, not used to seeing starters outside of a dinner menu, we thought it might be too much food for early in the day. We were mistaken. Above and left is a photo of the “donut holes with seasalt, caramel dipping sauce.” Oh boy... decadant, but lighter than you’d think, and oh, so good. We could just fast through Thursday - right?

We followed our breakfast starters with a wild mushroom omlette, and a smoked salmon benedict. Both were out of this world. The hollandaise on the benedict was perfect and seasoned so as to elevate the smoked salmon to a higher plane, and the poached eggs -- done right. Also of note, the potatoes that came on the side. I’m not sure how they do it, but there seems to be butter involved, they are rich, salty, sweet, buttery -- transformed from potato, to food of the Gods. More of those please! Breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner, you can not go wrong with Bluehour. One of the best restaurants in Oregon.

Table Five 08 in Salem is a great new find for us. Its casual look belies its fantastic offerings. At first appearances, it seems to be just a casual, corner place, offering the usual runof-the-mill food and drink. Do not be fooled. This restaurant is manned by some of the best in the business. Chef Jason Freeburg is a graduate of the prestigious “CIA” -- the Culinary Institute of America in New York, and bartender Rob Melton has been at it for nearly 30 years. Right away, you can see this is no ordinary place. Rob’s casual mastry of the bar is evident as he engages his guests and creates wonderful drinks 28

clearly without effort. Not that his drinks aren’t top shelf, he’s just beyond having to struggle. Think Stevie Wonder playing the piano. Jason is also a very unassuming, friendly guy without any of the pretense one sometimes expects from big-time chef types. But he definitely delivers the goods. A seared halibut served on a bed of charred corn and a signature dish -- the Pork Belly Lettuce Wrap, floated by when we were visiting and both looked fantastic. Prices are very reasonable too! We’re definitely going to do further research here!

This charming Victorian restaurant is located in the epicenter of Oregon’s Wine Country and is surrounded by over 200 wineries and the bounty of the Willamette Valley. In 2005, owners Allen Routt and Jessica Bagley saw a bright future in the quaint town and wine community of Newberg, Oregon.

Not long after opening, The Painted Lady Restaurant quickly became a fine dining destination. Now, almost 12 years later, Allen and Jessica are thankful for the thousands of global travelers who have passed through their white picket fence to experience an unforgettable food journey crafted from the fine ingredients and wines sourced from the Willamette Valley and beyond.

Red Bird Acres

FARM On a mission to deliver quality food Story & Photos by Karista Bennett www.karistaskitchen.com


Willamette Living ~ October / November 2016


ornings arrive early for Laura and Robin Sage of Red Bird Acres Farm in Corvallis, Oregon. Although each day brings something different, raising Idaho Pasture pigs, Freedom Ranger broiler chickens, goats and laying hens has a “to do” list that happens every day rain or shine. I met Laura and Robin a few years ago after moving to the Willamette Valley. I was awestruck by their passion for raising healthy and happy livestock while being committed to sustainable farming that produces healthy food for consumers. During one of my many visits to their farm, Laura said, “Our biggest values as producers of meat is that we are raising the animals with the utmost care and attention to humane techniques. This goes from breed selection, feed selection, providing the most natural and stress free life on pasture and gentle handling when it comes time to slaughter (which they do themselves). We are trying to raise meat with attention to the impact on the land and acknowledging that eating meat (as opposed to a vegetarian diet) has a bigger footprint, so what we encourage is that our customers eat less meat. But when they do, they should eat better meat. Better meat usually comes with a higher price. It takes a huge amount of labor to raise chickens and pigs in this method but also the feed costs are higher with quality feed. The benefit is an animal that lives a healthy life and in turn provides delicious and tremendously nourishing food”.

Leadership and Adventure Education. While working as Outdoor Education Guides they discovered there was a huge disconnect between educating the public about protecting our environment and our less than perfect food supply. After a visit to Oregon, Laura and Robin decided to switch careers and put their knowledge and passion into helping change our food supply by pursuing agriculture. Robin completed a yearlong internship with Afton Field Farm in early 2014. Not long after, Red Bird Acres was founded. Today, Laura and Robin tend the pasture work for about 4 hours of the day. The remaining work is milking the goats, processing much of the milk into cheese and yogurt and maintaining a tenth of an acre vegetable garden. Additional pasture work for Robin might include moving pig and chicken paddocks, which usually involves cutting fence lines through blackberry or tall grass, moving fence posts, setting new electric lines and moving all of the pig’s portable shelters and watering systems. Laura is the master schedule keeper and makes sure they have all the supplies they need and that things are happening on schedule. She also does all of the marketing, website maintenance, billpaying, product labeling, walk-in freezer organizing, farmer’s market packing and washing and packing the eggs. Laura said “I wash a lot of equipment each week at our poultry processing facility, maintain records and paperwork for our AWA certification - basically all the nonglamourous stuff that goes on behind the scenes”.

times when piglets are born. The sows are so docile and well loved, they never mind me traipsing through the pasture to get a peek of their new babies. On occasion, I’ve gotten to rub a few piglet bellies and scratch a few piglet ears, hearing their adorable squeals of happiness (and my squeals of happiness as well). Laura and Robin currently sell their chicken, pork and eggs weekly at the Saturday Corvallis farmers market and through their CSA. They offer year-round sign up for the pork CSA and sign-ups for the chicken CSA will begin again in January 2017. Currently, I make excuses as to why I must pick up my chicken or pork at the farm. Yes, it’s to see the baby chicks or new piglets and hang around the farm animals and soak in all the delightful farm vibes.   About Karista Bennett

Anti-Aging Makeup Tips

Natural looking - time saving - smudge proof EYEBROWS & EYELINER

You hear the phrase “anti-aging” a lot these days…but what does it really mean? I think the essence of the phrase is simply addressing anything that helps us to look and feel younger. Here are some makeup tips that will help you turn the clock back without drastic measures.


Referred by Physicians… Loved by Clients…

“I love Cheryl’s work! Very natural looking!”

Avoid drying powders which only accent lines and wrinkles. Instead, choose creamy tints, blushes and bronzers to highlight cheeks and give skin a youthful glow.


Pale and thinning eyebrows can be tinted, shaped and penciled in. Brows that show up make you look younger. Choose light, clean eye makeup over smoky eyes. To give eyes the bright, alert look of youth, choose soft, pale eye shadow shades over smoky eyes. Dark, shadowy eye makeup can make eyes look sunken or hooded, telltale signs of aging. Our lips tend to thin and lose color with age. Choose glossy lipsticks in light hues which make lips look young and plump.  Dark matte lip colors tend to make lips look older and thinner. There is another solution that will help you look younger all the time. Professionally applied Permanent Makeup for eyeliner, brows and lip color. Permanent Makeup restores youthful color to your lips, brows and defines your eyes with smudge proof color. It can also add fullness to thinning lips and correct irregular lip lines, making you look younger and more beautiful.

Help us explore a potential way to protect your heart

Because it is long lasting and difficult to remove, it is essential to have permanent makeup applied by a highly qualified specialist. Many people feel they would benefit from permanent makeup services, however are reluctant to proceed because they don’t know how to select a good artist. Similar to finding a surgeon, this is not a service you want to bargain shop for. You will want to have a consultation to see actual client photos and learn everything you need to make an informed choice. Today, many professional permanent cosmetic specialists are members of the world’s leading, not-for-profit society devoted to this field, the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP). This organization sets standards of practice for its members, which assures the public of the highest levels of professionalism. With that assurance you can look and feel younger all the time. Cheryl Lohman of Image by Design is a Licensed Esthetician and Permanent Makeup Artist and is a member in good standing of the Associated Skin Care Professionals and the Society of Permanent Makeup Professionals.

Has your doctor said that you have a high risk of heart disease? If so, you may be able to take part in a clinical research study We are currently recruiting patients for a clinical research study looking at a concentrate of omega-3 free fatty acids to see whether it can help to decrease the risk of serious heart problems in people with high blood triglycerides (a type of fat in the blood that can raise your risk of heart disease) and low levels of high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C; the “good” cholesterol). If you take part, you will be asked to take either the concentrate of omega-3 free fatty acids (made from fish oil) or a placebo, which contains corn oil, once a day for 3–5 years.

You may be able to take part in the STRENGTH Trial if you: • are 18 years of age or older • take a statin medication but still have high triglyceride levels • have at least one risk factor for heart disease, such as: – a history of heart problems or stroke – type 1 or 2 diabetes – high blood pressure or taking a blood pressure medication – being a regular smoker.
